Weekend At - Flamingo Beach Resort, Dubai UAE


HAPPY 2017 EVERYONE!

This post is about a weekend-getaway I had taken last year with my cousin and her family. Dubai, UAE sure does have many places for fun getaways but what makes Flamingo Beach Resort stand out is the beach activities held here. For those of you planning to pay a visit here, I hope you find this post helpful.


Flamingo Beach Resort located on the sandy shores overlooking the mangrove islands of Um Al Quwain is quiet a hidden gem in the northern part of the United Arab Emirates. Its serene beach, outdoor pool and the luscious greenery is sure to make the 60 minute drive from Dubai worth it. What makes this getaway even more thrilling is the water activities held here; keeping you active not only during the day but also at night.


Things to do - In order of HOW I SPENT MY TIME HERE; 

1. ALL ABOUT THAT BOAT

Go for a ride in the well maintained boat around the islands of Um Al Quwain where you can spot flocks of beautiful Flamingos. Also, there is chance you might get to snorkel in the crystal clear waters so don't forget to grab your snorkelling gear. If this doesn't thrill you enough, hop on with the professionals for some deep sea fishing.

2. PRIVATE BEACH

If you are simply looking for a hiatus with the sun, sand and sea, the private beach at Flamingo Beach Resort is the perfect place to be. You can either do water sports or spend some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

3. PLAY OUTDOORS

Set in the tropical garden, Flamingo Beach Resort has a fun play area for kids and also a huge play area near the beach. If you're with a big group or have kids, you sure won't find ways to kill time.

4. WATCH THE SUNSET
One of my favourite part of this getaway was watching the sunset on the dock. So beautiful!


CRAB HUNTING
The most FUN and super adventurous activity at the Flamingo Beach Resort is hunting for crabs. Imagine getting down in the murky water of the sea at night with torches and spears stabbing crabs and screaming on top of your voice when slimy squids touch your feet (Yeah, that would be me!) Ferried in the night when the tides are low, the crab hunting is done at the natural mangroves abundant with crabs. The adventure climaxes when your catch is cooked and served for your dinner! I'm not a crab-eater but hunting crabs? I'M GAME!


6. DHOW BUFFET DINNER
Dinner served on the boat AT THE BEACH, UNDER THE STARS. Enough said 


7. WAKE UP IN TIME TO SEE THE SUNRISE
The private beach at Flamingo Beach Resort gives you a spectacular view of the sunrise. So don't sleep in as not every day you get to see such a magical morning view.

8. BREAK THE FAST
All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast. if you plan to leave the next day, don't miss out to indulge in the lavish breakfast buffet.

 While this happened to be a perfect weekend-getaway, there was one thing at the Flamingo Beach Resort that left me slightly disappointed.
↦ The quality of food served at the Dhow Buffet Dinner was average. I would suggest going for the Al a Carte menu - more options + good quality.
